October 4 is Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Honouring and Awareness Day. Reclaiming Power and Place: The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls delivers 231 individual Calls for Justice directed at governments, institutions, social service providers, industries and all Canadians. The Calls for Justice are aimed at ending genocide, tackling root causes of violence, and improving the quality of life of Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people.
Sandra DeLaronde will guide us through the 231 Calls to Justice as a path of reconciliation.
